The Humanitarian Crisis Is the Immediate Issue in Sudan

 The US Institute of Peace posted on 11 May 2023 a commentary titled "What Sudan Needs Right Now" by Alex Rondos.  

The author concludes that malign, foreign interests will likely seek to exploit the situation in Sudan to advance their own interests.  The risk of Somalia-like anarchy on the Red Sea is real if the current fighting continues and foreign support for the warring parties continues to grow.  Nevertheless, the immediate need is to address the deepening humanitarian disaster.
